I have met him a couple of times and off camera he doesn't spout all this drivel, he's quite a nice guy.
He's no different to Frankie Boyle or Jimmy Carr in that they use statements written to offend.
Cannot divorce the man from his views, Comedians use shock for the point of humour, Clarkson has views on how society should be and it has an alarming amount of subscribers, he is not a comedian.
ergo; he is a massive prick (see morgan, cowell et al)
But we already have a Clarkson thread somewhere
